Hola to 2009

Where to begin?? We've had a great Christmas break with lots of play time, movie time, eating time and minor sick time. Below is a picture of Mitch (or is it??!) building with the Lincoln Logs. He added smarties to the roof to make it one of those gingerbread houses we never really got around to making this year.

Next we have a picture of Ethan. Everyone got some fake tattoos in their stockings this year because I strongly believe that is one of the greatest inventions EVER. Imagine my surprise to walk in the bathroom one day to see Ethan applying them on his chest himself. He obviously knows where real men wear their tats. Or he also knew that with his hoodie zipped up I wouldn't know that he'd been doing his own private bathroom craft.

Next up is Me! I had a Birthday and turned 3*! I would say, but that takes all the mystery out of my profile. Anyway. I had a great day filled with shopping, food, family and Hub taking care of my every whim.

Hub made me a chocolate raspberry trifle. Isn't it pretty enough to eat?
He also made lasagna Alfredo. Or is Alfredo lasagna? I honestly have no idea and am too lazy to look it up. Whatever it was, it was very good and very rich and after the huge Chinese food lunch we'd had I think our fetus was putting on a lot of weight yesterday. (Isn't it nice to have a fetus to blame any Holiday weight gain on?)
Oh yes, if you are dying to see a touching tribute and darling pix of my past visit sis CC's blog.

Seven older brothers! Heckaleeah! My brother had 7 older sisters, but that might have been worse since he took the brunt of it--no siblings after him. Your poor mom! So, did you eat the too-pretty-to-eat trifle or not?

Sher said...

That was a beautiful trifle and did Ethan do the tatoos before or after the trip to Grandma's? That was a good picture of you and I hope your 3? year is a great one.

Your kids are funny. Ethan is especially creative. I still feel warm towards him because he wanted to give you diamonds.

I wish I could see Leon working in the kitchen. Are those mushrooms I see in the lasagna? Yummo.

Happy Birthday! I am a little disappointed that you didn't do a touching tribute to yourself... maybe tomorrow...

Just wanted to remind you the Happy New Year offer ends Mon. Jan. 5th at noon for the free 8x10 print. Spread the word for people to post and e-mail David Bowman by then :) Have a beautiful Sunday! ♥ Hugs! Shauna

way to go Leon for treating you to a great birthday. I bet you're excited for your next!?! I have another gift for you if you're still in the mood for celebrating!? Happy New Year!
P.S. After planning for 24 3rd graders to make gingerbread houses I REALLY like moustach Mitch's version : )

Denise said...

I love the Tattoo pic of Ethan. What a Dude! haha

Happy BIRTHDAY!!!! Although, I bet that I can guess how old/young you are. Mostly because we are unfortunately the same age.

Also, you should post the recipes for your dessert and Lasagna Alfredo it looks DELICIOUS!!!!!! I want to make!

LC said...

Happy Birthday Megz and good job to your hub for the fab dinner and dessert. You're older than me now--hee hee.

big8smiley said...

Who got you to wear the hat?? It looks like you are having a lot of "inside" fun during this cold spell. Congrats to Leon for his work at making your birthday so special. It looks like he really went out of his way for you. I've never even had a trifle before, but it looks delicious. :)
